ABOUT ME – HAKKIMDA

Welcome to my website!

This website, in the vast world of internet, is a little place of mine in which I freely share my ideas on various topics that I find interesting and worth sharing. At the moment, topics are not focused; they range from photography to free sources of internet. However, it is a reflection of my own background, so it makes sense in itself. I’ve studied philosophy at Boğaziçi University and did my master in Sociology. Meanwhile, I followed my interest in media arts and worked as a freelancer in media production including directing and taking photos for various occasions. I am mostly active on Instagram so you can catch up with me there. I walk around the streets of Istanbul, visit museums, take photos and share them.

There are lots to write on this website; important notes on the books I read, the historical background of the places I visit, inspirational works of artists, truly great sources on the internet that you can utilize from etc. I hope to create time for all of it. Meanwhile, feel free to share your thoughts, criticisms or suggestions under the articles I post..

Elio Montanari, Italian architect and photographer

Elio Montanari, Italian architect and photographer

Interview with Elio Montanari by Tuğba Kibar/ Experience of Living Together in Istanbul / October 2010

Elio Montanari is an Italian architect and a photographer with a focus on buildings and physical structures and therefore the city itself in general. Living in Istanbul since 2002, Elio was married here for the first time of his life and plans to stay in Istanbul from now on.

When one is posed the question related to the coexistence of various religious groups, family ties and neighbourhood relations are almost the only subject matter that is discussed. During my conversation with Elio, I came to realize that physicality of space in and of itself can be the foundation of coexistence.

There is no shock for me because I don’t have any problems of identity in the sense that I was always used to, to meet diversity. I mean the problem of identity is being solved with meeting different people. So, I believe in what we may say, cannibalism. Intellectual and spiritual cannibalism which means that I see you, you are different from me. So I cannot have any shocks about Istanbul and the people in Istanbul. But I find myself. Yes, I always find myself through diversity, through meeting diversity.
